Welcome from Head of School

On behalf of Swiss International School, Qatar (SISQ), we welcome you to our community.  We are a fairly young school but have quickly found our way to the top as one of the leading schools in Qatar.  Here, our vision comes to life and our mission is the path we take towards achieving excellence in education simply because every student is nurtured to be fulfilled, inspired, and prepared for a future of endless possibilities.

We provide the highest quality learning opportunities to the children of Qatar and go above and beyond our capabilities to prepare global citizens who accept challenges, think out of the box, embrace diversity, respect cultural differences, and contribute meaningfully to a more interconnected world.

At SISQ our strength is in our diversity.  We have over 63 nationalities on roll, which has enabled us to learn from our differences and build upon individual perspectives to achieve the best results in our students’ learning outcomes.  A testament that was highlighted by both the IB evaluation team and the CIS accreditation team that have visited SISQ last academic year.  It is both an honor and a privilege to have received these two accreditations simultaneously.  Much of the credit goes to our lovely parents, amazing students, and dedicated teachers and administrators who were with us every step of the way.

As an IB World School, we proudly adopt the International Baccalaureate's philosophy and pedagogy. This framework guides us in developing inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young individuals who are equipped to navigate the complexities of our global society. We empower our students to become true global citizens by fostering intercultural understanding and respect.

Our language of instruction is English, providing students with a foundation for academic success and effective communication. Additionally, we offer French, Arabic, and German as second and third languages, promoting linguistic proficiency and cultural appreciation.

Our commitment to holistic education and a culture of care ensures that each student's well-being and growth are at the forefront of our educational approach. Beyond academics, we focus on character development, empathy, and preparing students to make positive contributions to their communities and the wider world.

We invite you to explore our website and uncover the exceptional opportunities that await you at SISQ. Join us on a journey of academic excellence, holistic development, and the cultivation of global citizens who cherish diversity and flourish in an interconnected global landscape.

Welcome to SISQ, where excellence knows no boundaries.
